We are undergoing one of those rare periods of accelerated innovation in which almost anything seems possible, and what wasn’t part of our collective imagination a few years ago is now considered normal. In some small way it brings to mind the theory of the inflation of the universe shortly after the big bang: not only are there new forms of matter and new possibilities, the space in which those possibilities exists is larger too.

I’m referring to the Internet of Things (IoT), which is creating...
These trends are not new; for more than six years IBM has been talking about the smarter planet with more things instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. What is new is that these trends are accelerating, and their confluence is creating a large space of the newly possible. It takes an ability to innovate--in business models as well as engineering practices--to grasp the possible.
IBM is investing significantly in the Internet of Things, putting $3B behind a new business unit focused on delivering solutions that help our clients to take advantage of the opportunities that IoT brings. We are aligning our engineering solution with IoT, including what was formerly known as the Rati
As a result of these enhancements and an increased focus on IoT, we introduce a new name for our engineering solution for addressing the Systems V with collaborative, integrated, and open tools built on the Jazz integration platform:
Version 6.0 becomes available this month, bringing (1) new efficiencies for development with configuration management in and across the engineering disciplines, and (2) new levels of reuse when engineering your product line of connected systems.
The IoT-enabled things that touch us as consumers are already raising our quality of life. But it's the application of IoT patterns to manufacturing, B2B services, and other industrial and commercial domains that will have the greatest impact on economic growth—and thus raise the general standard of living in our societies. How will you seize the opportunity? What is newly possible in your world?
